Wardens Rising, a PvE co-op action that has us defending bases against gargantuan assaults, MOBA-style, is heading to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
In Wardens Rising you will play as heroes in an elite fighting force assembled to save humanity from massive invasions by interdimensional enemies. An action-packed coop PvE MOBA-like experience of sorts, Wardens Rising gameplay is a mix of action hero shooter and base defense, where player heroes must protect energy cores across the realm from 100’s enemies in a single battle by using their special abilities, building and upgrading defense towers, and deploying tactical items on-the-fly. Between invasions heroes can upgrade their abilities and stats as well as unlock and upgrade new content to equip in their technology loadout. The isometric perspective helps you see what’s happening in battle with the invading enemy forces as well as to plan the best location to build defense towers and deploy tactical items liketraps, walls, healing, teleporters and more!
Let's take a look at the official trailer!
Each Warden hero class has a set of special abilities, core ranged attack and an “ultimate” + their customizable loadout of technology that includes towers, items, and a SPEC companion – all of which can be upgraded. Currently 6 classes are planned for initial release including a Soldier, Elemental Master, Shinobi, Engineer, Hunter, and one that is TBA. You can upgrade your hero's core statistics and abilities overtime with victory points that you earn through success in defeating invasions. The game encourages experimentation with various combinations of SPEC, towers, and items configured in your loadout based on the map, invasion, game mode, or your personal preference. In addition to special abilities, all Wardens can dodge, sprint, jump and glide through the air with their personal energy reserve. The jump + glide feature is unique for a game with an isometric camera view, gives heroes a tactical advantage, and is loads of fun to do while blasting enemies from the air!

Super Meat Boy Forever, Team Meat’s long, long awaited sequel to 2010’s runaway platforming hit Super Meat Boy, will be out for Xbox One & Series X/S and PlayStation 4 & 5 on April 16th for $19.99 / £15.99 / €15.99. This follows its December release on Nintendo Switch and Epic Games Store.
This much anticipated sequel also moves the Meat Boy saga forward, as Meat Boy and his partner Bandage Girl have had a child, Nugget, who has unfortunately been kidnapped by the sinister stillborn psychopath, Dr. Fetus (I hate that guy!). So now it’s up to Meat Boy, Bandage Girl, and some surprising new characters in the Meat Boy Cinematic Universe, to rescue the kidnapped child.
In the time since we saw him last, Meat Boy has been hitting the gym and he now packs a punch with an oversized, Battletoads-esque right fist that packs a mean whollup! Combined with new slide and plummet maneuvers, Meat Boy is more agile than ever!
What’s better than playing through Super Meat Boy Forever once? The answer is simple: Playing through Super Meat Boy Forever several times and having new levels to play each time! Levels are randomly generated and each time the game is completed the option to replay the game appears and generates a whole new experience by presenting different levels with their own unique secret locations. We’ve handcrafted literally thousands of levels for players to enjoy and conquer. You can replay Super Meat Boy Forever from start to finish several times before ever seeing a duplicate level. It is truly a remarkable feat of engineering and a monumental example of ignoring the limits of rational game design and production.
“As great as it was for Super Meat Boy to make his return on Switch and the Epic Games Store, no return would be complete without a victory lap on PlayStation and Xbox platforms - which many of you may remember Meat Boy making his console premiere on over a decade ago,” said Team Meat co-founder and programmer Tommy Refenes. “Super Meat Boy Forever isn’t just more of the same though. This is Meat Boy evolved. He now has a completely different moveset, controls, power-ups, and endless level remixes that can be played forever!”
Super Meat Boy Forver launches on Xbox and PlayStation consoles on Friday, April 16, 2021.
